when you access http(s)://myname.pagekite.me you should see exactly the
same as when you access https://freedombox_ip. By default that's the
Plinth (freedombox web-admin interface) login page. Do you see that when
accessing your IP without any sub-folder?

Once that works every sub-folder that works locally (like
freedomboxip/foldername) should work via pagekite also (like
myname.pagekite.me/foldername). So if it's working via your IP address
already, all that's missing is to set up Pagekite correctly.

Your setup looks good, could you please post (or link to) the content of
/var/log/pagekite/pagekite.log, at least the last part of one connection
attempt when enabling pagekite (enabling pagekite)?

By sub-kite do you mean subdomains (like myapp.myname.pagekite.me)?
In this case you can use the 'Custom Services' page to set them up --
but disable the standard services first.
